We will fight for policies that allow all working people the freedom to form a union without employer interference, and will stand with and fight for working people when they organize a union or other form of worker organization, including workers organizing at the airport and health centers.

The rights of working people are fundamental to democracy and a strong economy. Unions and other worker-led organizations play a vital role in our society by providing balance to the power of corporations and billionaires in our economy and democracy, enabling working people to organize together and negotiate fair wages, so we can care for and support our families. When we have good union jobs and other forms of worker organization, including at airports and health centers, our economy is stronger and our communities thrive.

People call the current National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) election system to organize a union a secret ballot election—but in fact it’s not like any democratic election held anywhere else in our society. It’s really a management-controlled election process because corporations have all the power. They control the information workers can receive and routinely poison the process by intimidating, harassing, coercing and even firing people who try to organize unions. No employee has free choice after being browbeaten by a supervisor to oppose the union or being told they may lose their job and livelihood if workers vote for the union.
